The urgent need to accelerate structural change into a more sustainable fashion system is well documented in the EU's Green Deal for the textile-fashion industries, recognising the critical importance for a cross-border, multilateral approach to make a real and collective impact and meet the net-zero target of 2050.
Yet on the current trajectory of a global annual output of 100bn garments, where 60% arrive in landfill or incinerators within a year and a mere 1% of it is recycled, an accumulated amount of 1.7 trillion garments waste would be generated by 2050.
